Time & Location








About this class:

This is a 8-week virtual class using the Zoom platform.

Tuesdays: January 17, 24, 31, February 7, 14, 21, 28, March 7 - 12-1:30 pm CST.

In this course, we will read contemporary short stories from across the globe, all of which use elements of the magical and fantastic to convey psychological truths in women's lives. As we will find, the modern fable shows itself to be far from simple in either form or content, as authors draw on multiple genres and stylistic techniques to engage complex questions of gender, sexuality, power, history, and the self.

However, in an increasingly polarized world, we at Humanities North Dakota believe that being open-minded is necessary to thinking critically and rationally. Therefore our programs and classes reflect our own open-mindedness in the inquiry, seeking, and acquiring of scholars to speak at our events and teach classes for our Public University. To that end, we encourage our participants to join us in stepping outside our comfort zones and considering other perspectives and ideas by being open-minded while attending HND events featuring scholars who hold a variety of opinions, some being opposite of our own held beliefs.
